Zara Stonely's Stable Mates seemed right up my alley though, so I took the plunge...into tedium. I love sprawling country dramas, but I found myself struggling through this one. Honestly, I made it about halfway through before I finally caved and skipped to the end to see who our heroine (used lightly) ends up with, and I was disgusted enough to not read any further. Not only are there no Rupert Campbell-Blacks to be found, but I unfortunately didn't care enough for any of the characters to really want to know what happened to them. This could possibly have been made better by loveable, well-charactered animals, but I found the few mentioned to be more nameless plot fodder than anything (so horse-lovers, look elsewhere).
Naturally, it's very British, and if you're like me and enjoy that type of writing...you'll give it three stars instead of two.
I did think the death of Marcus and how this put into motion all the chaos and angst of the Tippermereians over Folly Lake Manor and the wider equestrian centre took a little long to get going especially after the opening. I do get that there was quite a cast to introduce however so possibly that couldn't be helped. I liked Lottie but I honestly never bought Rory's love for her. There's charmingly aloof and then there's Rory. I didn't really root for Lottie to get her man so much as get over his wishy-washy nature. Still, I loved her interactions with her grandmother, Elizabeth and her fraught relationship with her father, Billy & uncle, Dom. Amanda was well done and I enjoyed Pip as well. I truly felt Stoneley was fabulous at describing the comedic chain reactions set off by people, dogs or horses, alike. It was very vivid in the telling and made me laugh throughout. I give nothing but kudos to all things related to "the wedding". It was perfect and everything you wonder about as you flip through Tatler. I was having Kyle/Chardonnay wedding flashbacks. There were plenty of sexy times throughout but I didn't think it was over done nor exceedingly spicy but it was fun.Read more ›
Rory Steel is a sexy three-day eventer and owner of a small horse yard in Tippermere. Billy Blinkley is a former superstar show-jumper with a reputation as a womaniser. Amanda James is a grieving widow and now owner of Folly Lake Equestrian Centre, while Lady Elizabeth Stanthorpe resides over all the proceedings with a meddling and mischievous skill.
Through lots of confusion and twists Lottie, Billy's daughter is searching for reasons why she loves the place and is desperate not to see it sold off and her father left homeless. Should she keep forever chasing the hopeless Rory or should she look for love and stability elsewhere? Perhaps Mick the Irish Farrier has the answers or perhaps Tom the supermodel?
This was a fun read and very suitable as a holiday or beach read.
This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author via Brook Cottage Books.
